30-04-2019 First report: “Creative and Cultural Industries and Global Production Network approaches so far”
CICERONE has published a report that provides a focused review of the literature on cultural and creative industries since the 1990s, presents the main components of the Global Production Network (GPN) approach and then applies this analytical framework to the cultural and creative industries.
